On December 28th of 1881 while crossing 5th St., Virgi Earp was ambushed and shot. Would be assassins hidden in a new building under construction opened fire with shotguns. Virgil was severely wounded. He survived, but lost the use of his left arm. Meyer's Brothers Clothing and the Huachuca Water Co. moved into the new building. Later it became a popular saloon called the Bucket of Blood. In 1909 it was remodeled into a tourist hotel. In 1928 it became in the Owl Cafe and Tourist Hotel. The historic building burned in a fire in 1942, thought to have begun in the cook's quarters. A new building was erected in the 1950's and in the 1970's it became the Longhorn Restaurant.

Directions: From Tucson heading east on I-10, take exit 303 at state highway 80 towards Douglas. After about 23 miles, you will arrive in Tombstone, Arizona.
